Billy's Birthday Card

This is my 2nd post today...that NEVER happens!  But to be fair I did make the baby card yesterday, just didn't get it posted.  We are celebrating our son's birthday this weekend (it's Aug 4th), because they live 3 hrs away and he has this Sunday off.  This image is Video Game Guy from Bugaboo Stamps and is PERFECT for Billy!  I was one of their top 3 winners a few weeks ago and this is one of the images I chose:)  He is colored with copics and cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched square die.  The layout is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge #116.  Striped digital paper is from Doodle Pantry (no longer in business), polkadot from my stash, lime green by Bo Bunny, and blue cs by Craft Smith blues 12x12 pad.  I googled the film strip, imported it into Silhouette Studio, traced, and cut out, the "candy dots" are perler beads that I melted.  Happy Birthday sentiment is a freebie at Birds Cards, cut out with The Stamps of Life large stitched circle die, and matted with SB large circle die.
